If anyone still has their parents, go visit them.
I just lost my dad on 3/14 to the big C.
He never visited here or owned a boat, but he loved to sail. And he never missed the opportunity for a ride on anything from old wooden boats to plastic marvels. I found out later, while I as off wasting my youth in '76, he was involved with OpSail in NYC...........and so it goes, I wised up a little late.
He said to have a party, when he was out of here.
And so, if you will raise a glass with me,
(A Gin Martini, extra dry, no Vermouth )
Boat lover and all around good man.
Fair winds and following seas. Keep an eye out for us.
